Good news for Air Madagascar Plc at last! Since yesterday, the only Malagasy airline company was not suspended to the BSP France anymore. The re-opening of the issuance of Air Madagascar’s tickets is now effective. Since yesterday, all GDS in France can trade Air Madagascar’s tickets. This shows that despite of Air Madagascar’s problems, the French air authorities believe that the national airline company is still reliable.
Air Madagascar Plc was suspended by all European BSPs on April 21st, 2011 after that Brussels has decided to ban an Air Madagascar’s plane – a leased Boeing 767-300 – from flying all over European air space. According to Brussels, this plane lacked necessary maintenance activities in breach of essential European air safety standards.
